Morgan enshrined in sand at Col. Green's 
estate at Round Hill was visited by count- 
less people o The Morgan was torn loose 
by the 19 38 hurricane which left her a sham- 
bles. Now the focal point of the great 
marine village at Mystic, Connecticut, 
the Morgan has been completely rebuilt and 
rerigged and remains the last New Bed- 
ford wooden whaling ship left on the face 
of the earth. 

The photo is by the late James E. Rey-

Adshead of Fairhaven.

PLAY TO BENEFIT AMERICAN FIELD SERVICE 

The Fourposter by Jan de Hartog will be pre- 
sented at the Marion Art Center on Thursday 
and Friday, May 10 and 11 for the benefit 
of the American Field Service Chapter in the 
Old Rochester School District. The Fourposter 
is the story of a married couple and begins 
with their wedding night and traverses 35 
years of wedded "bliss". The funny, as well 
as the sad happenings of Michael and Agnes, 
will be portrayed by Sally Jones and Jeff 
Dunn and directed by Nancylee S Gaucher. 
Both young people have been prominent in 
local school Fellowship and Art Center pro- 
ductions „ 

The play was first produced on Broadway 
and starred Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy 
in 1951. Later it became a favorite of the 
Lunts and even later was turned into a musi- 
cal comedy, "I Do, I Do!", for Mary Martin 
and Robert Preston on Broadway. It is a

FISHERY LOCAL 

A meeting was held with the Massachu- 
setts Division of Marine Fisheries on request 
of local control of the herring fishing. Allan 
Peterson, Assistant Director of the Division, 
conducted the meeting attended by Rochester, 
Marion and Mattapoisett Selectmen and the 
Herring Inspector. Fifteen people were in 
attendance. The Division of Marine Fisheries 
held a formal hearing and in a week they will 
send a draft of authority for the town to con- 
trol the fishery . The three towns have been 
operating under an agreement dating back to 
the early days of town history which was 
nullified by the legislature a few years ago. 
Now, one town must be designated to con- 
trol the fishery if the Division of Marine 
Fishery so decides.

Quiet Public Service 

Editorial, D.C.J. 

As the town moves into a Sanitary Landfill 
method of rubbish disposal , it is a good time 
to recognize a long service to the people of 
Mattapoisett. The monthly trash paper truck 
has removed countless tons of paper from our 
dump. This means, of course, that all these 
tons of paper return to use as recycled paper 
products instead of saturating the air of Mat- 
tapoisett with burning gases and ash. Who 
can imagine the size of the forest that was 
saved because this waste paper returned to 
the paper makers' vats? The cooperation 
that this effort has received from the towns- 
people has been great. The paper is brought 
to the collection point monthly by so many 
who carefully save and bundle it all montho 
This complete voluntary extra effort is testi- 
mony to the fact that people do care and do 
so in large numbers. People will go out of 
their way to do something to clean their own 
atmosphere . 

The Republican Town Committee, who de- 
serves such commendation for this service.

has done this quietly with no publicity. They 
have put in much time in checking the truck 
and packing the contents which is hard and 
heavy work. The truck has to be checked 
regularly throughout the weekend which re- 
quires the attention of these people. Over 
the period that this service has been pro- 
vided this amounts to a lot of effort and it's 
all completely unselfish service to the com- 
munity . 

As our new Landfill Dump goes into operation 
this paper truck is even more important to us. 
Each ton of paper which rolls out of town does 
not have to be buried. Each ton of paper which 
rolls out of town lengthens the life of the 
dump. More important, those tons of paper 
will return to useful life instead of rotting 
away in the earth. This is conservation at
